Attention, fans of boxes with knobs: I haven’t abandoned you. Especially not when boutique synths seem to be all the rage. Here’s the latest, via Gearjunkies:

L.L. Electronics RozzBox [non-German readers, just click specs]

No plastic here: aluminum with maple sides. Inside, you’ll find a 4-operator FM synth with adjustable glide (looks like you could route it for virtual analog, too) and the usual filters, envelopes, LFO modulation, etc. The synth looks really flexible, and there are some especially nifty features: external audio input, integrated ring modulation (exterminate! — uh, cough, sorry), built-in sequencers that also function as modulation, and even a tube distortion / filter option. MIDI input / output, even envelope follower in, and, for you true analog junkies, an optional control voltage (CV) input.

Gorgeous, compact, flexibly-designed, and it’s not another cheap Moog clone. Now the only question is, where / when / how much? I’ll get back to you if I hear more.

    I've wanted one of these for a long time – I've been aware of this box for a little over a year now (though this appears to be an updated version). Seems nearly impossible to get outside of the EU. Several e-mail attempts have failed (no response) and I've only seen one turn up on Ebay in the last 3 months. It sold for 600 euros or so…

    But if it ever becomes available in the US, it will go straight to the top of my list. đŸ™‚

    The revised site doesn't give the specs that were previously available, but the older version of this box did have an analog filter option as well. Yum!

    I am so smitten by this box, I've wanted one the last 4 years when the concept was first storyboarded by Killian. I sincerely wish him the best of luck in his studies and in the eventual production and distribution of this beast. What a marvelous concept.
